I ordered a new iPhone 12 pro on October 29. I got a message that it was backordered and expected to ship November 25, which was fine. However, Nov 25 came and went and no shipment. I got a notification that the ship date was now today, December 11. I have not received any update on the shipment. I get that the new phones are popular and its near the holidays, but I ordered this over a month ago and it is honestly just getting ridiculous at this point.
I am experiencing the exact same thing. I've even tried cancelling, figuring I would just order the 12 Pro Max instead, and I can't even cancel my order. This is some real garbage, as my fiance got his 12 Pro right away - and we ordered the day they came out. I've been waiting since then, and got the same email that the updated ship date was Dec 11. Where is my phone??

I am experiencing the same problem but it is now may 2021. Ordered 2 s21+ phones on the 17th. Was told we would have phones by the 19th. On the 19th called back and after what seems like an eternity on hold (probably 45 mins.) was told they didn't know why they haven't shipped but we could expect the tracking number emailed in a day or so. May 20th called and was told the phones are backordered but we will have them by the 25th. Now I am not the brightest bulb in the string but it is now the 22nd and no email or tracking #. Apparently your shipping dept. is not available on weekends. Unless you are shipping next day air the 25th seems optimistic. Please let me know when we might see our phones. I feel as if I have been lied to. Thanks
jaysabic, we understand the concern you have for the delvery of phones that you have ordered. Were you given a order number and location code for your order? Have there been any updates?
